Here's all the show and tell and info from my group's meeting yesterday. It's always inspiring and motivating!
A completed donation square top. This quilt was sewn together by Diane Spackman with the help of her friend Michiko Hardy. Sewing these together with another is enjoyable~one can sew, one can pin. This top will be tied and donated.
Diane's cathedral windows and a link included for an easy tutorial.
Kelley, from Alaska and visiting with us for the first time shows us her round robin quilt from her Alaskan quilt group. Each quilter added a new border.

We exchanged wool squares so we can make this table topper. Thank you for the pattern!
Lori demonstrated the wool dying process. So easy! Here's the link to the full tutorial from an earlier post.
For lunch we had hot soup, yummy artisan bread made using the 5-minute method in this book
